Premium Times, an online investigative and news website, had accused Adeosun of parading a fake NYSC certificate after failing to serve upon her graduation from the University of East London at age 22.

Although Adeosun is yet to respond to the allegation, the NYSC said the Finance Minister did apply for an exemption in 2019.

But former NYSC DG retired General Maharazu Tsiga, says Adeosun was not entitled to an exemption certificate having graduated from the university before hitting 30.

Sports Minister, Solomon Dalung, reportedly summoned the NYSC DG over Adeosun's certificate saga.
